Jesus meets with Zacchaeus

As Jesus walks through Jericho, a wealthy tax collector by the name of Zacchaeus awaits his arrival atop a great sycamore tree. Zacchaeus was small in stature, so he needed to elevate himself in order to see Jesus past the overwhelming crowd of people. Jesus notices Zacchaeus, and asks to be welcomed into his home. The crowd is displeased by the sudden turn of events, pondering why Jesus would want to go to the tax collector's home. Zacchaeus is flooded with joy, and promises to give away half of his possessions, and pay back everyone he has defrauded 4 times as much as he owes.


Jesus & the crippled woman

Whilst Jesus was teaching in a Synagogue on the Sabbath day, a woman who had been crippled by a spirit for 18 years. She was not able to stand upright. When Jesus saw her, he says, 'Woman, you are set free from your ailment.' After laying his hands on her, she is immediately relieved of her ailment and begins praising God. Following this event, the leader of the synagogue was extremely displeased as Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day. Jesus replies in anger, accusing the others of being hypocritical, stating that we all do work on the Sabbath, and that the crippled woman deserves to be set free after 18 long years of torture from Satan.
